NCALJ Committees

Perhaps the best way NCALJ members work together professionally and socially to meet the Conference's goals is through the committee system which provides a lively and open forum for debate, analysis and education.

Get Involved

One of the best ways NCALJ members work together professionally and socially to meet our goals is through committee participation. Not only will committee involvement provide you with a lively and open forum for debate, analysis and education, and the chance to further develop your leadership skills, but it also gives you working and social access to other judges from across the country with common, as well as diverse, interests and goals.
